Transforming lives at Helping Hand Center is at the core of what we do. During this time we realize the importance of maintaining connections that carry us through life’s challenges. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, we holistically understand its impact on our clients, staff and community.
We are continuing to provide genuine care and education for our clients in a safe environment. We are also grateful to our dedicated staff who are rising above all obstacles to provide meaningful days and a healthy routine for the adults in our 12 homes.
You can help too! We encourage our community to stay engaged with our mission through social media during this time of social distancing. We will communicate updates on our social media platforms, like Facebook, along with several ways you can support our mission over the coming weeks.
Please consider an additional gift to Helping Hand Center as we respond to this demanding situation.
As we follow governmental directives, our agency is facing decreased revenues and increased expenses for the 24/7 high-quality care we are providing to the vulnerable individuals in our homes. We are the primary and sometimes the only caregiver to these individuals and are committed to providing the best quality care through this crisis.
